Association becomes Healthy Living provider

PRESQUE ISLE, Maine– Healthy Living for ME recently welcomed Central Aroostook Association as a new community provider within the organization. 

As a community provider, Central Aroostook Association partners with Healthy Living for ME to bring workshops to the local community to help Mainers improve their health and wellness. The association will offer HealthMatters, an evidence-based health and wellness program for individuals with brain injury, intellectual, or developmental disabilities. 

“We are so pleased to be partnering with Healthy Living for ME and adding this health and wellness program to our services for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. This is a wonderful opportunity to add to our program offerings,” said Melinda Barnard, outreach specialist of Central Aroostook Association. 

Healthy Living for ME is a statewide network of local organizations, health systems and volunteers that work together to empower individuals to take control of their health. Their free and low-cost options focus on the whole person, rather than a single condition, to improve overall quality of life.

“Our partnerships across the state are crucial to helping us provide resources and programming to as many Mainers as possible. We’re glad to have Central Aroostook Association join us and look forward to helping them bring HealthMatters to their community,” said Jen Paquet, training manager of Healthy Living for ME.
